Israeli Leaders Express Well-Wishes to Jews Around Globe for Rosh Hashanah
Israeli leaders have expressed well-wishes to Jews around the world ahead of the Rosh Hashanah holiday, which begins on Friday night.
“May the coming year be a year in which the bonds between Israel and the Diaspora and between Jewish communities everywhere grow stronger and stronger,” Israeli President Reuven Rivlin said.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu called the normalization accords signed with the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain at the White House earlier this week “wonderful blessings for peace for the new year — a blessing of hope, a blessing of friendship, a blessing of peace, and it augers well for the people of Israel and for the State of Israel.”
